El Diablo, a restaurant in Timanfaya National Park on the Spanish island of Lanzarote, is cooking up food for tourists in a strange and innovative way.

At the restaurant, dishes are barbecued on a grill heated using geothermal volcanic heat. The one-of-a-kind grill was designed by architects Eduardo Caceres and Jesus Soto. Caceres and Soto used nine layers of volcanic basalt rock to make the grill since conventional cooking system materials could not withstand the heat of the volcano.

The restaurant, aptly named after “the devil” has been operating since 1970.

The island of Lanzarote is the easternmost island in the autonomous Canary Islands.
